The Osun state election tribunal has approved the request of governor-elect Ademola Adeleke to inspect the materials used during the state’s governorship election in July.
The tribunal had also agreed to his request to conduct a forensic audit of the BVAS machine.
Justice Teresa Kume, the Chairman of the Tribunal, granted Adeleke’s application to inspect and conduct a forensic audit of the BVAS machines.
Mr Hashim Abioye, one of Adeleke’s Counsel, who spoke to newsmen after the proceeding, said there was the need to conduct a thorough forensic audit of the BVAS machine used for the election.
The Tribunal had on Aug. 22, granted permission to Gov. Gboyega Oyetola and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to inspect materials used for the July 16, governorship poll.
Oyetola and APC are plaintiffs in the suit earlier filed, challenging the victory of Adeleke at the governorship election.
INEC had declared Sen. Ademola Adeleke, governor-elect, as the winner of the Osun July 16 governorship elections, where he defeated the incumbent, Oyetola.
Oyetola, who was not satisfied with the outcome of the election, dragged both INEC and Adeleke to court through his lead counsel, Mr Yomi Aliyu (SAN).
